The NSC is pleased to offer opportunities for amateur athletes of all ages and abilities! We create opportunities for members of our community to showcase athletic talents, participate for pure enjoyment, meet new friends, make family memories, test mental and physical limits and achieve healthier lifestyles.


Programs of the Nebraska Sports Council are made possible because of the financial support of more than 60 corporate sponsors, in-kind and cash donations from more than 350 businesses and organizations, and the efforts of more than 2,500 volunteers.


The Council was founded in 1985 by Dr. Richard Hammer, Jerry McGinn and O.W. “Bill” Smith and is governed by a 24-member statewide board of directors.


The Nebraska Sports Council is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization with a mission of providing quality competition for amateur athletes of all ages and abilities and promoting healthy and active lifestyle choices. We function as Nebraska’s leader in sports and wellness events management.
